Mine has a very deep philosophical meaning. Or it could just be a picture of Chococat.

Mine is a still from my favourite scene in Requiem for a Dream.
When Marion says to Harry, " I love you, Harry. You make me feel like a person." And then Harry says, "Marion, you are the most beautiful girl in the world. You're my dream." :)
What was once before you - an exciting, mysterious future - is now behind you. Lived; understood; disappointing. You realize you are not special. You have struggled into existence, and are now slipping silently out of it. This is everyone's experience. Every single one. The specifics hardly matter. Everyone's everyone.

Mine simply states a simple truth: Everyone Sucks But Me.

You know you can't deny that fact. :P

Mine is a picture of my hair, in a plait, when I was lying on the floor. My hair's pretty long, so thats why I have that.

I found this avatar one time when I was looking for a change, mainly for my LJ, but I like it better here. I loved the humor of this one, it's dry and sarcastic, yet the image comes from a beloved children's movie. The contrast fits my personality well- I'm such a child at heart, but I'm nowhere near innocent.

I cropped mine from a larger picture I found on the web years ago. I'm slightly obsessed with dragons and tend to be alone most of the time and I feel that this avatar sort of symbolizes how I feel. I've grown somewhat attached to it, but I'm thinking about changing it to something I've drawn.

I was walking up St. Urbain street in the cool mid-autumn drizzle to have some lunch with my love, and we saw this chair and traffic cone sitting out in the parking lane, positioned just so. I thought "art!" and took a picture or two (some with her on the chair, some without), then a guy leaned out a nearby window, wondering what we were doing photographing his little blockade of a parking space so that he'd have a place for the moving van to go.

My avatar was made by Ingryd, when she was still around. Oh how I wish she was still around. She could have seen me grow up from a mini annoying person to a full blown normal person!

It's Krista the fairy from Fern Gully and the Last Rain Forest (which was once my entire username before the forum switch; logging in sucked).

::channels Barbara Streisand:: Memmmmmmoriessssssssss...

I once considered making my own avatar, but loyalty to the Old Country Spacefem years made me reconsider and stick with this one.

(Plus this is about as far as my artistic talent could take me: <a href="">This</a>.)

-Mephistopheles! What a badass.

He's from the legend of Faustus, although his precise identity changes among the many versions of the story (the quote is from Goethe's). My picture, however, was cropped from an illustration by Wayne Reynolds (his "WAR" signature seems to appear in all my favorite D&D illustrations) in Wizards of the Coast's Book of Vile Darkness supplement for D&D. I checked and it's not illegal, yay!

He's also in NeverWinter Nights. And he's badass.

Mine is a Michael Whelan painting called "Passage: the Avatar". I decided to switch from my previous one of Ninja Ozaki from the Samurai Lapin animations at , and the name caught my eye.

My avatar's a drawing of an elf that I did a very long time ago. I originally drew it in pencil in a cheap paper sketchbook. Of course at some point, I decided to scan it in (never a good idea with a pencil drawing). Then I figured I had to color it. Needless to say, those were the most frustrating eight or so hours of my life!

Actually, though, I'm an elf in real life, with a silver mullet. So I guess it looks kinda like me.
